The course introduces you to using Arabic in computers with an emphasis on displaying, reading and inputting Arabic text. This, in turn, will allow you to conduct research using tools available online as well as create content for dissemination in Arabic.

While remaining within the framework of shariah, the ulama historically have adopted the latest technology to preserve and propagate the Din such as paper, the printing press and radio to name but a few. In this era, computing is a required skill for any scholar akin to writing. This course aims to fill the gap so learners meet the requisite skill.
In this module you will learn to configure your computer to display as well as input, edit and format text in Arabic. Furthermore, you will learn to extend these utilities to translate, transliterate and conduct research electronically.
